High West Distillery & Saloon - Park City, Utah

High West Burger
Looking for a great place to eat after a heavy day of skiing? Look no further than the High West Distillery located just off the main drag in Park City.  Plan ahead though because this place gets PACKED. My first night in Park City my brother and I tried to eat here at around 7 pm and the distillery had already stopped taking reservations!!! The next day we went for an early meal around 4:40 pm and got in right away- no reservation.

The menu is chock full of all the items you want to see after doing some heavy skiing and cardio- steak, fried chicken, burgers.  I tried the burger and it was awesome.  Cooked to perfection and loaded up with marinated onions and gooey Gruyere, this dish really hit the spot.  And you can tell the fries that come with are homemade because they are crunchy and perfectly salted and taste of fresh, fried potato. However, there are plenty of options for healthy sides as well, like Brussel sprouts and kale.  And don't forget to check out the dessert menu which boasts some delightful creations including a homemade S'more, cobbler, and cheesecake.

One of the real draws to this place is the whiskey which is made and distilled onsite.  If you want to try em' all check out the whiskey flight - an opportunity to try four of their fabulous whiskies.  The best, in my opinion, is the Rendevous Rye which smells of cloves and cinnamon in the nose and feels beautiful going down.

On your way out walk though the hallway where the glass reveals the inner workings of the distillery.  It is cool to see and a process that is much appreciated by a bourbon loving Kentuckian like myself.  Stop at the shops and try out other local places for sure but don't miss out on this little treasure of a distillery!
